The majestic family-owned Chateau de Theleme dates back to the 14th and 17th Centuries and can be found in the centre of the "Triangle of Prehistory." Only a short drive from numerous historic sites and landmarks - the Lascaux caves, chateaux such as the feudal fortress of Commarque and the medieval jewel of Sarlat. Guests will not be short on places to visit should they wish to explore the local area.
The Chateau de Theleme offers panoramic views of the entire valley right up to the Dordogne and boasts an impressive 20 hectares of grounds. The beautiful local countryside is one of the chateau’s main selling points, but for those who prefer to relax, guests can enjoy lazy days in the sun on one of the several loungers around the chateau’s large private pool. The rental also includes complimentary maid service (3 visits per week) to really help you unwind.
